Live/Work in a Container City

Forget my treehouse fantasy (at least for the moment). Now I’m dreaming about working out of a container.
London-based company, Container City, uses shipping containers linked together to create building shapes for offices, retail spaces, artist studios or even a live/work environment.
The modular technology enables construction times and cost to be reduced by up to half that of traditional building techniques while remaining significantly more environmentally friendly.

They’ve constructed multiple projects thus far, from a container city of funky artist studios to a children’s center with external walkways, leave it to the Brits to think out of the box. (Pun intended.)
